for removing that post? first, as we know, the diary of our fallen ambassador christopher stevens was uncovered at the site of the terrorist attack. according to cnn, he had concerns about his safety. this blatantly contradicts the state department's now deleted memo. since that discovery secretary of state hillary clinton has denied the concerns. remember this? >> there's one report suggesting that ambassador stevens that he was on a, quote, al-qaeda hit list. is this a scurrilous humor, gallous humor when one is workg in a period of great difficulty and challenge or is there something more to what he allegedly -- i stress that word -- said? >> as to your question, i have no information or reason to believe there's any basis for that. >> sean: despite the fact that our own ambassador e wrote it in his own diary, we're supposed to believe he never mentioned any of these concerns to his superiors, no emails, no diplomatic cables, nothing? secretary clinton also claims that the administration had no information to suggest that our assets in libya were ever at risk, but in light of the news that t

the liberal media that trashed leher's performance and thought he was going to be unfair. >> steven colbert called him the most boring man on evening news. that is something what we saw. i have to agree with rick and with ellen. i think he understood that the two men wanted to engage and he stepped out of the way. that was a good thing. >> the lincoln-douglas debates were between lincoln and douglas. there were no moderator. everybody would like to say, that would be a better model. they tried it that th time. now, the media are blaming leher. one wrote last week that the media is part of team. romney is playing against the democratic team and media team and the fact that leher wasn't a tackler he is now getting beat up for it. >> jon: the ratings were huge, 67 million people. they have a way of measuring people how people stay with the program. they stayed with it. leher must have been doing something right. >> again the media was removed from the equation. we got to see the candidates talking. i'm a big twitterer. it was very exciting to be twitter during the debate and watched as people

stevens and the three other americans died as a result of a terrorist attack. >> certainly on that particular question, i would say yes. they were killed in the course of a terrorist attack on our embassy. >> two days later, secretary of state clinton made it even plainer. >> what happened in benghazi was a terrorist attack and we will not rest until we have tracked down and brought to justice the terrorists who murdered four americans. >> keeping them honest, if the white house wants credit for quickly labeling what happened in benghazi an act of terror, can't also claim credit for prudently not calling it terrorism for so many days. whatever you think, clearly these are two candidates with some big questions to face and perhaps, they will less than 48 hours from now. that debate, a lot to talk about for us. the polls, debates, big economic numbers coming out this week. joining us, ari fleischer, serving as an unpaid occasional campaign advisor to the romney campaign. also, robert reish, former labor secretary in the clinton administration, economist and professor of publi
